Great Lives: Chalres Swindoll

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would promote it as another book in Swindoll's series on men of God.

Any additional comments?

If you have been reading the other books in Charles Swindoll’s series about great men of God, then this is a must read. He continues his series with the biography of himself. All the discs in Part 1 except one small portion cover his life before he was called through the early days of his ministry. Part 2 covers every right decision he made to arrive in the beautiful life that he still enjoys today with added information on speaking. He tells us how blessed he was to have his wife, his children and all the churches to which he was called. He had the same struggles raising his children that many of us have and he helps us understand that although a circumstance may seem bad, it is all for God’s glory. This narrative is especially helpful for those who are evaluating God’s decision to bring them into the ministry and those who are just beginning their life in the ministry. I am a born again Christian and really appreciate the radio ministry that he has and how it can be a benefit to millions of people.The reader was a perfect fit for the topic of the book. His voice was pleasant, easy to listen to and helped make repetitive information easier to listen to. He added the credibility needed for an autobiography of a minister.With that said, I also deliver speeches and always appreciate help and tips from others on “How to Say It.” The information that Swindoll provides on this topic could fit onto one disk. It is so cloaked with stories of himself that you might have to go back to catch the paragraph or two that he has to offer on speaking. The information is in the line of be sincere, be yourself and speak from your heart. I will never listen to these discs again for information on speaking. It was like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

Best advice for preachers and teachers!

This audiobook is excellent for preachers and teachers, especially those handling Biblical passages! Chuck Swindoll is vulnerable, transparent, and entertaining with his personal stories and illustrations. He makes practical recommendations about each step in preparing and delivering a good sermon or lesson. The narrator is excellent and the book is one I will want to refer to again and again!
